    Daily Kos: Pope Francis: Unfettered Capitalism Is "Tyranny"; Economic Inequality "Kills."
    That's what the Daily Kos says. That's not what the pope said.

    He never used the term "unfettered capitalism."

    Pope Francis To Critics: I'm No Marxist, But They're Good People

    "Marxist ideology is wrong," the pope told Italian newspaper La Stampa, as quoted by NBC News. "But in my life I have known many Marxists who are good people, so I don't feel offended."

    According to many on the right, it is impossible for someone to hold Marxist views and still be a good person.

    Not me, I didn't elect a junior senator who was still wet behind the ears, not me.

    No, it's totally the fault of the Republican Party that they couldn't even mount a campaign that could defeat said junior senator. They did pick an electable candidate in '08, and even picked the only electable candidate running in '12, but still didn't have the political savvy to get them elected. What a pathetic bunch of losers!

    Not even Hillary Clinton could mount a campaign to beat said Jr Senator.

    The rest is history, as Obqma and his complicit ilk lied. cheated and obfuscated to win the 2012 election.

    Or do you seriously think he would have been re-elected if people knew the truth about " keeping their doctors" ?

    The average middle class American family is the loser.

    Frankly, as long as they aren't trying to rob me, or try and get a coercive force to do so, for their benefit, I don't give a **** what their views are.

    I don't know if he would have been reelected or not. Never underestimate the ability of the Republicans to shoot themselves in the foot during the election campaign.

    Will they be able to mount a successful campaign in '14 and in '16? Maybe so, maybe not. They will have to do better than they did in the last couple of elections.

    I'd call them a socialist dictatorship, that is slowly liberalizing its economy. Here's where we get into what you should have realized a long time ago, not everyone has the same subjective opinions on what is and is not capitalism, communism, socialism, etc, etc. So while you would call Cuba communist and I wouldn't, the Pope may call the US and other countries "unfettered capitalist" while you wouldn't.

    I would have chosen Edward Snowden.

    But as Popes go, this guy seems pretty cool.

    Everyone is reporting he did from extreme right to extreme left. What is your source saying he never said it?
